Can I fund my wallet or investments using my online exchange wallet?


For withdrawals, you should re-confirm the withdrawal address on both your 3rd party exchange wallet and CoinList prior to submitting a withdrawal. Exchanges have various policies for crypto deposits, and the sending addresses don't always match the receiving addresses. We recommend you designate a return address for which you hold the private keys. CoinList is not responsible for transfers being appropriately credited to your account at a 3rd party exchange. 

Can my crypto return address point to an online exchange?

No, your crypto return address cannot point to an online exchange. Your crypto return address must be tied to a wallet for which you hold the private keys. 

Note that you can, however, fund an investment using your online exchange wallet.

What's a wallet?

In general, a wallet is a program that enables users to send and receive digital currency and track their balances and transactions. They also store important security information: your public and private keys. There are several types of wallets: Hardware, Software, and Online. Hardware wallets store a user's private keys on a hardware device like a USB. Trezor and Ledger are popular hardware wallet brands. Software wallets run as an app on your phone or desktop. Online wallets run in the cloud and are accessible from any computer or smartphone in any location. 

CoinList offers online wallets. 

We also use the term "wallet" to describe your U.S. dollar account.
